Abstract:

Rotational barriers and conformational energy differences have been calculated for 2-chlorobutane and 1,3,5,7,9,11-hexachlorododecane. These are considered as model compounds for syndiotactic poly vinyl chloride. The theoretical methods include high level ab initio SCF and configuration interaction methods. Accessability to gauche and gauche states in the polymer are in light of these model compounds.
